New 8 X plant Scented collection, Primula florindae

Product no.: 4[1]

Primula florindae collection. 8 plants of mixed colour. We cannot be certain as to the colour of each plant but the picture shows the range of colours.

Primula florindae or the Giant Himalayan Cowslip is a magnificent plant. It is of huge stature flowering at a height of 100cm (3½ feet) and extremely long lived; up to 20 years being noted by many. The best conditions are a rich moist fertile soil where it has a chance to develop its gigantic proportions; huge numbers of strongly scented flowers can be enjoyed during June and July, this being the latest Primula to flower in the garden. It can also naturalise in a damp situation but in this regard is best suited to a big garden. When conditions are not so damp Primula florindae still grows but all of its parts are reduced in size; but still producing masses of scented flowers.

Add fragrance to your garden. A magnificant plant from the Himalayas with the most delightful scent. Easy to grow. Plants supplied root-balled ex pots ready for planting or potting.
